  • Episode 609 - 'Jennings, Elizabeth'

    I thought the length of the computer stuff was so we could admire 80s tech in more detail or really lack thereof for the time. Also I think the Pastor Tim call wasn’t pointless he was just awkward enough I even think he may have obliquely coded what he was saying in case the KGB found out he gave them up he’d be dead. Either way it was just weird enough to keep Stan piqued and not drop the bone.

    Interesting the ladies auctioning off the stuff said they wanted a European vacation and settled for...Key West. 

    Which is a perfectly nice place, Ernest Hemingway’s home and all but I thought they’d go to at least Italy with $30+k from the auction. 

    @DrKen I thought the same thing @Cecily is remarkably tall. Had no idea.

  • Winds of Winter is rumored to now be the last book in the series???! (No Spoilers)

    How do you guys also feel about there only being 7 episodes this coming season?
    It sounded like they'll be longer but also a big boost in budget for each. So instead of budgeted down earlier episodes for a penultimate blow out it might be more evened out and consistently dynamic.

    I get enough existential dread from this show maybe I don't need The Leftovers.

    Anyone else worried Oleg was going to throw himself off the building Mad Men opening credits like?

    Dude Oleg! If only my dating life was as easy. It's like Soviet Bachelor on hometown dates plus they cook and pour you vodka?

    But I get it's probably not a great time to start a relationship when you're being blackmailed by the CIA.
    I listened to the Slate podcast about this today. The host interviews the showrunners and sometimes the actors or different crew members. The showrunners said this dating setup was something that was really done in Moscow at the time! 
    That is a great podcast with direct access to all the people who make the show. Really insightful.
